Video- Brayden McNabb Hit On Henrik Sedin

from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,

Henrik Sedin is dealing with enough — take your pick of a hip-flexor ailment or a back injury — and playing through pain is one thing. Being drilled early into the sideboards by Brayden McNabb on a hit that clearly targeted the captain’s head is something else. McNabb got a roughing minor and Alex Biega a double minor for roughing in challenging the Kings’ defenceman.

“I thought it was a flying elbow to the head,” said Sedin. “The ref said it was a clean hit and I haven’t seen it yet but you’ve got to trust they’re making the right call and if they’re not, the league has to look at it. For me, the only point of contact on me was my face.

“I was surprised nothing worse happened. The only mistake I made was not staying down longer (after being hit) but that’s on me.”

Said Biega: “I thought it was a high hit and it’s your best player and you never want to see those things. I don’t think it’s acceptable in this league. I’m not sure why it was only two minutes.”

Added Willie Desjardins: “I thought it was a tough hit and got him up high.”
